MOSCOW, September 24 (RIA Novosti) - United Nations' Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for "flexibility and creativity" to reach an agreement on Iran's nuclear program during a meeting with Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, the UN informed in a readout of the meeting.
"The Secretary-General called for flexibility and creativity with a view to reaching a comprehensive agreement on Iran's nuclear programme. The two leaders agreed that all parties should seize the current opportunity to reach a win-win solution," the readout said.
Ban Ki-moon also encouraged the Iranian leader to "engage constructively on Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan" and thanked for Iran's help in establishing "a more inclusive government in Baghdad".
A number of countries, including the United States and Israel, have accused Iran of attempting to develop nuclear weapons under the guise of a civilian nuclear program. Tehran argues that its nuclear development is aimed purely at meeting the country's growing energy needs.
